Register for this event on Eventbrite:  My ancestor was a WW2 pilot - Nick Davey

 A personal story illustrating the hunt for one man's WWII Military records.

About this event

2020 was the 80th Anniversary of the Battle of Britain and thankfully to the 75th Anniversary of VE and VJ Days. Whilst the pandemic curtailed many opportunities to collectively remember those who never returned, various information providers have offered free resources.

Join Nick Davey as he traces the story of his relative using available WWII Military records, from the beginning to the end with a DSO along the way.

This session will cover…

  • Available online resources for WW2 research, including Ancestry & Findmypast and on other websites.
  • Suggestions for further research.

Our speaker: Nick Davey

Nick has always been interested in History and in the mid 1980a he started researching his own family history. He joined the Glamorgan FHS in the 1990s and ran a family history research company until 2009. Since 2006 he has led the Family history sessions in Cardiff Central library (The Hub) run by the local branch of Glamorgan FHS and since retiring in 2016 he has undertaken some of the 'Ask the Expert' sessions for Glamorgan Archives.

Please note that we will open the Zoom waiting room at 10:50 am and the talk will begin at 11:00 am.

This free talk is open to all who register, but to find out more about the Glamorgan Family History Society and the benefits of being a member, please visit our website
